Jesus Feeds Five Thousand

Awhile back, the angels asked me to dedicate Sundays to the Gospels. Here is the Gospel  of Luke 9:11B-17 – with a loving angel guided message behind it. 

Jesus spoke to the crowds about the kingdom of God,
and he healed those who needed to be cured.
As the day was drawing to a close,
the Twelve approached him and said,
“Dismiss the crowd
so that they can go to the surrounding villages and farms
and find lodging and provisions;
for we are in a deserted place here.”
He said to them, “Give them some food yourselves.”
They replied, “Five loaves and two fish are all we have,
unless we ourselves go and buy food for all these people.”
Now the men there numbered about five thousand.
Then he said to his disciples,
“Have them sit down in groups of about fifty.”
They did so and made them all sit down.
Then taking the five loaves and the two fish,
and looking up to heaven,
he said the blessing over them, broke them,
and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd.
They all ate and were satisfied.
And when the leftover fragments were picked up,
they filled twelve wicker baskets.


Last Sunday, we celebrated the Eucharist,  The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. 

This is one of many miracles Jesus offered for all. Even in a place that was deserted – with no provisions- five thousand men and the disciples were fed; through Christ and the abundance of God. This food was not created by human hands, but offered from God, through the hands of Christ our Lord. Their bodies, well nourished by Christ Jesus, by food not created by human hands, had even twelve wicker baskets left over, and all were picked up- not leaving any to waste. 

Jesus and God supply for all of our physical and spiritual needs-and God supplies for all of our needs abundantly. Every time we pray to God, He knows our spiritual and physical needs before we come to Him, and knows the reason we pray. Staying close to Christ in our hearts and minds, helps us too to be nourished in our hearts, nourishing our minds and our bodies. He has asked us to believe in Him, as we believe in the Father who sent him. Receiving Him and His Word in our hearts. 

The angels say that when you pray to God sincerely, that God is always happy to help. God asks us to Trust Him and have Faith. This miracle was one of many to help us understand that nothing is impossible for God. A miracle is a revealing of God’s Truth in the physical. Have faith when you ask God, especially when you ask through Jesus’ name, for His Will with [name the situation here]. Have faith in His Son, Jesus, who like God, is the only name in Heaven who is Glorified with Him.
